THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION - LISTEN: Rhyan Sinclair, "Gasoline in the Morning
In Their Words: “During the writing of this album, I was working through past trauma in therapy. That experience strongly informed my writing for this album, and I think that’s especially present on ‘Gasoline in the Morning.’ The song, for me, is about mental health, its upkeep, and ultimately, reevaluating what you allow to propel you forward…what you use as ‘fuel.’

SOUND AND SOUL - Fires From Our Lineage: Rhyan Sinclair on ‘Letters to Aliens’
Listening to Rhyan Sinclair’s latest release, Letters to Aliens, during these short, brisk days delivers the comfort of furnace blast, a reminder of spring’s warmth and sunshine. The album also conjures the season’s promise of renewal and rebirth. If the Kentucky native’s 2018 debut album Barnstormer is the sound of a seventeen-year-old stepping out her own, testing her wings after fronting the alt-country All the Littles Pieces, Letters is a rocket blast of self-discovery, self-assertion, and inevitable paradox.
March 3, 2022 - Charlie Farmer, Sound and Soul
Kentucky's Rhyan Sinclair is one of those rare songwriters who can simultaneously pay tribute to artists who inspire her and create something entirely new, within one song.
In 2018, she released her first solo full-length, Barnstormer. Later in 2018, she released the holiday EP, Marshmallow World, which was featured on the Americana Music Association's Holiday Playlist.
In the spring of 2022, this impressive new voice in country returns with Letters to Aliens, which continues the theme of a woman on a journey, but this time the vibe is cosmic, seventies-esque folk rock with whispers of traditional country.
